An evidence-based initiative to increase use of own mother’s milk in a NICU: the impact of COVID-19
This article describes a quality improvement approach to increase the use of own mother’s milk (OMM) during the first 14 days of life for infants admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit of a neonatal tertiary centre in Portugal. The project coincided with the COVID-19 pandemic, providing an opportunity to assess the impact of COVID-19 on lactation practices and OMM doses.
